for president obama and confident in terms of the issue agenda and immigration reform and also the look of the administration, that that will be reflected. >> doug brinkley, put this in historical thing, a first time in a long time you have had three back to back presidents holding two terms. does that bring with it a certain stability to the administration of the united states? >> i think it does. you know? media pays a lot of attention on who's replacing hillary clinton, john kerry and the head of cabinets but there are also a lot of reports that have been ginned up in agriculture and commerce and interior. and those now on the president's desk and using executive orders to do new things, a new type of farming procedure, a new national monument and couldn't do that in the first term and just living in the white house if you're any family coming here, the president today could watch football, come and be so calm and collected, zen-like almost tonight and be really ready for a second term and the media makes a lot out of curses of the second term but it's a great opportunity. obama care

with the community. we saw that with over 70% vote for obama. >> it's the first time until a very long time you've had three back to back presidents all doing two terms. does that bring a certain stability to the administration of the united states? >> i think it does. there are a lot of reports that have been jimmed up in agriculture and commerce and interior. he can start using executive orders to do new things on new type of farming procedure or monument. he koun do that in tcouldn't dot time. takes a while to adjust living in the white house. the media makes a lot out of these curses. obama care may have been a first term success but he's got to make it the law of the land. >> most presidents had been hit by this curse. ronald reagan has the iran contra scandal. they all seem to get unsettled and unravelled by a big event often beyond their control. barack obama, we don't know what it may be. it may be nothing. he has the green shoot for a better economy. hi didn he didn't have that four years ago. is that going to be a significant help to him? >> think about second term dwight eisenhower.
